    hey.. for Trinitas you need to have a 2.5gpa to start nure130 and its harder for transfer students to get it.... they do it by invitations only now... meaning you need to have the 2.5 or higher gpa and all pre-req met....

    How is the nursing program at trinitas? I currently go to Muhlenberg and i don't really like it. Help

    Hi there: I'm currently in the Accelerated BSN program at UMDNJ in Newark. I had also been accepted to Muhlenberg's Accelerated Assoc Degree program, but decided NOT to attend there. So that's why I'm interested in your comment above, about you not liking Muhlenberg.

    May I ask you to share with a little more "specificity" some reasons "why" you don't like Muhlenberg?

    Thanks!!

    On the ucc website i read that the trinitas nursing program offers a "diploma" in nursing.......is that different from a regular degree in nursing?.....
    I am 2 semesters away from grad. from hunter college w/ a psych degree and ive taken all the pre-reqs.....my gpa is far from great tho.....which is why i was considering trinitas.....but a friend told me that the program is 5 semesters and u cant take any of the classes in the summer and that in ur first semester there u cant take any nursing courses.....so the actual nursing classes start in the 2nd semester??......dont know if i want to spend another 2 yrs when ive seen others graduate in 18 months thru an accelerated program......

    has anyone recently started the trinitas program??....do u like it??

    It's true a diploma-only option is offered. All that means is that you don't need to take all the rest of the associate's requirements (non-nursing/non-nursing prereq's) for Union County College. You get to sit for for the NCLEX, and become an RN, and do not get an AS degree. It is true that (aside from the prereq's) there are only 5 nursing courses. The first is offered in the summer the rest only durning regular semesters...the five courses must be taken in sequence. It does take 2.5 yrs to complete. It's unbelievably difficult, with instructors who are un-helpful, and eager for you to fail. My class started with 250 students...aprox 25 will graduate 5 classes later. It is also NOT a weekend only program. All must be prepared to take multiple weeknight classes. It is also, on average about 5,000 dollars per course.

    hi guys!
    this coming semester i will be in nure 131. I just want to ask how the clinical works. Do they assign students to different hospitals or just in trinitas? hope you guys can help me

    Each semester is different, but they do use other hospitals in addition to Trinitas. They also use Rahway, Overlook, and Raritan Bay (Perth Amboy).

    thanks for the info, it is helpful to know since i'm still deciding my class schedule. I overheard a friend saying something about it but i just wasn't able to ask her again.

    Sorry for the trouble again, but I just want to know if it is true that if I take a morning lecture class, I'm suppose to take a morning clinical? is that true?
  11. by   NJGuy5
    well, generally it's true that you choose to be in the program for either days, or nights/weekends. Day students typically take day lecture and day clinicals. Nights/weekends students take lecture on weekday evenings, (excpet for 130) and clinincal can either be either weeknights or Saturdays (if available).

    That said, lectures for day and night/weekend students typically mirror each other (althought the lecture is given by different faculty). So the real deal is... except for test and quiz days, where you must attend the lecture for which you are registered, you may attend any lecture you want.

    I will say, however, attending the lecture for which you did NOT register, is discouraged.

    It is confusing, but hope this helps you.
